Napa cabbage, along with bok choy is one of the popular cabbage vegetables in mainland China. Other multiple benefits are:

Very low in calories

  • Packed with anti-toxins such as carotenes, thiocyanates, indole-3-carbinol, lutein, zea-xanthin, sulforaphane and isothiocyanates
  • These anti-toxins can help protect against breast, colon and prostate cancers and help reduce LDL or “bad cholesterol” levels in the blood.
  • Great source of folates such as folic acid, one of the building blocks of DNA. Thus helping against neurological diseases.
  • Full of vitamin C
  • Packed full of Vitamin K. Vitamin-K has a potential role in the bone metabolism by promoting osteotrophic activity in bone cells. Therefore, enough vitamin K in the diet makes your bone stronger, healthier and delay osteoporosis.
  • It is a very good source of electrolytes and minerals

So smash some Chinese cabbage.
